The National Sports Center is located in Blaine, Minnesota, approximately 25 minutes north of both Minneapolis and St. Paul.
As of July 2019, the National Sports Center has changed the names of our outdoor athletic fields. All fields will now be identified by number and parking lots have been renamed by single letter designation.
Please review the maps below to navigate our campus according to the new field names.

From Minneapolis, take I-35W North to the 95th Ave NE exit. Turn right onto 95th Ave, which turns into Radisson Road after you go straight at the first light. Follow Radisson until you turn left onto 105th Ave NE. This route is signed to the NSC from the I-35W exit. The NSC buildings are south of 105th Ave NE. The majority of the fields are on the north side, between 105th and 109th Avenues.
For all customers (except those traveling west and northwest of the NSC -- to Coon Rapids, Anoka, and Elk River,) the quickest and most traffic-free way to exit the NSC is the follow the "Rule of Four Rights:"
Right on 105th
Right on Radisson
Which will lead you right to I-35W
And right home!
